    HI first time @ DW. My 2 Girls love princess. Do you have any affordable suggestions that can make this experience magical? Also if we rented car do we have 2 pay for parking at the parks? We are going 4 9 days what do you suggest 4 planning?

    Hey Leanne, oh how exciting to be counting down to your girls' first trip to WDW.  I have three girls so I am with you on being all about the princesses.
    There actually are some great ways to meet the princesses without having to book a character dining experience.  For starters, at the MK several princesses can be found under the big top tent at Toontown.  When you enter just look for the line marked with pictures of the princesses.  Also your girls can meet Ariel at her own grotto, which is located behind Dumbo at MK or share story time with Belle.  Be sure and look for Cinderella's step sisters around the castle too, they can often be found lingering by the carousel.
    Jasmine can be found in Adventureland at MK and Mulan is sometimes spotted at DHS.  Also at DHS your girls will enjoy the Beauty and the Beast Stage Show as well as Ariel's under sea voyage.
    And if you are looking to meet Pocahontas, I have found the best place to spot her is AK.  These are just a few ways to get your girls up close with the princesses without going over the budget.
    And with regards to your parking question, if you are staying at a WDW resort, you do not have to pay to park at the theme parks.  Thanks so much and have a magical WDW vacation.
